Ambrotype | Photography Workshop
About the Event
Ambrotype (from Greek ἀμβροτός — “immortal”, and τύπος — “impression”) is one of the oldest positive photography techniques, used since 1851. It allows creating one unique image, without the option of making extra prints. Considering the picture can last undamaged for as long as 180 years, such a portrait will be a cherished memento for many generations!
Instructor: Roman Krawczenko
Roman Krawczenko (b.1957) – Photographer, historian, instructor. Since 2015 he has been running the Photography Studio of Workshops of Culture, located in one of the most beautiful corners of Lublin’s city centre and named after the Hartwig family. While working in Poland, Roman has developed his own alternative photographic technique, which is the result of three years (2015-2018) of experimenting with four historical photographic techniques – wet plate collodion, ambrotype, verre eglomise and orotone. Roman has given the name Lublintone to this mixed photographic technique, created in Lublin. In May 2016, works in this technique were exhibited for the first time at the Festival of Analogue Photography in Barcelona (Spain). Roman Krawczenko is happy to share his knowledge and skills with young Polish photographers. Therefore, it is not an exaggeration to say that his efforts contribute to the emergence of a new school of photography in Poland.
